I have a suite of tests which have run successfully for quite some time now for a Silverlight application.

The application is being migrated to Silverlight 5 and I find a few tests failing with some "Element not found" issues.

While resolving these issues, I randomly seem to be running into the following exception for tests that just worked successfully a second before:

Object reference not set to an instance of an 
object.InnerException:System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to 
an instance of an object. at 
Telerik.WebAii.Controls.Xaml.RadComboBox.ToggleDropDown() at 
Telerik.WebAii.Design.Translators.Xaml.ComboBox.ComboToggleDropDownAction.Execute(IApplication 
appHost) at 
ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Extensibility.XamlActionDescriptor.Execute(IAutomationHost 
autoHost) at ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Execution.ExecutionEngine.ExecuteStep(Int32 
order)

When I quit and reopen TestStudio the issue goes away for a while.

My test suite is comprised of recorded sets with a few variable extractions and one coded step to set the value of an extracted variable.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks

Mathias

Did you all ever figure out a fix for this?
 I am having the same issue.

Hello Jessica,

The other ticket was resolved by using a "WaitForElement is Visible" on the RadCombobox. I hope that helps.
